Minnesota Hockey has announced its scholarship opportunities for 2021. Minnesota Hockey is proud to support its members as they pursue post-secondary education with a limited number of college scholarship awards of $1,000.
Minnesota Hockey has provided scholarship opportunities to graduating seniors for over a decade with the intent of assisting its members in pursuing post-secondary education. To be eligible, players must be registered members of Minnesota Hockey teams or a participant in Minnesota high school hockey who will be graduating high school this spring.
The Junior Gold High School League, which oversees Junior Gold hockey in the metro area, also offers two memorial scholarships specifically to junior gold players. The Wes Barrette Scholarship is provided each season in honor of the legendary Junior Gold coach Wes Barrette. Barrette played a key role in the development of the Junior Gold level and founded the team Wessy’s Boys which has been a fixture in the St. Paul area for over 20 years. They also offer the Bruce Kruger Scholarship, which is named after long time Minnesota Hockey board member and passionate proponent of junior gold hockey, Bruce Kruger.
